Take part in an active dialogue with Hillary Nather-Detisch, Director of Development at Joslyn Art Museum, that focuses on the development office essentials needed for any nonprofit organization - from a small, grassroots start-up to and organization that has been operating for years but many need to spruce up/revise policies and procedures.

This session will address development office essentials, proper tools and techniques for following up with donors, a discussion around donor cultivation versus solicitation, and fundraising ethics.
